Ever done Bicycle Valet Parking at an urban festival?

Postby HalfHour » Mon Feb 27, 2012 2:09 pm

Anyone have any experience/knowledge of running a bicycle valet parking service? Maybe during an urban arts or music festival? Willing to answer a couple of questions?

We're doing a Maker Faire in the fall in Calgary, and part of our tentative plan is to run a large/temporary/protected bicycle storage space, and a valet service to get bikes in and out of the space.

Please send me an email at hermann<dot>mike<at>gmail<dot>com

Thanks,
HalfHour

When I was a kid I used to pray every night for a new bicycle.
Then I realised that the Lord doesn't work that way so I stole one and asked Him to forgive me.

I love this - could see it at BRC, drop off bike, valets park bike at Manbase, at far bank of JOTS, out along trash fence, next to Distrikt, etc... then vanish...

Come to think about it, I think they already provide that service. :twisted:

There are always morons parking their bikes close to perimeters at temple, etc.

I've helped rangers drag them off and toss them into a pile.

That's sort of a valet service.
